So I'm from Texas and when I think of Park I think of green grass, trees, and things to do in the park. This park is in the middle of downtown, the LOVE sign is very small, and the fountain is very big. I wouldn't call it a park, more like a fountain in the middle of downtown. Maybe it's... More

This is pretty much just a quick photo op. We asked a family behind us to take our picture, and we reciprocated for them. We did not stay long here due to what looked liked homeless people yelling at each other with many curse words.

This park is very close to City Hall so an easy walk to take a quick picture. Its crowded and yes the statue is much smaller than you think it would be. There is a large fountain and lots of "locals" milling about.

This is the iconic "LOVE" statue in the city of brotherly love. It's smaller than you may think, but still nice for a photo op. Definitely worth a visit, even just for a couple minutes.

I must say I was disappointed with the park because of its condition and lack of security. To begin, the love statue is much smaller than I anticipated. There are teenagers skating through the park recklessly without any authority preventing it. Additionally, while forming a line to take a picture of the statue there are homeless people coming up to... More

The famous symbol from the beautiful movie, Love Story, this iconic statue is the center piece of Love Park.

This is a nice spot for taking pictures. I steer away from this area late at night, for it can get a bit seedy.

That's what she said! Sorry. I had to. It is though. I mean, it isn't Mona Lisa small, but the letters are always photographed close up so you don't realize they are rather small and on a raised platform. It was a pretty day when I went, so the view was very nice and colorful with the fountain backdrop. A... More

I thought it was strange that so many people were wading in the fountain, clothes and all. Not just little kids but adults of all ages. There were also lots of bums sleeping all over the park. Overall and interesting atmosphere.

You cannot miss the colorful LOVE sculptor . ( oh if you need to see more that one LOVE in situ, venture to the U of Pennsylvania in west Philly). Park is elevated on JFK blvd. just NW of City Hall. Visitor center. Music at times.
